hauxThe partition table on one of my hard disks looks like this: sdb1 sdb2 (free space) sdb4 (free space). sdb4 is my /var directory in Ubuntu. I'd like to move it up to sdb3, so I can create a new sdb4 extended partition to make a few more logical ones. How can I do that without messing up Ubuntu?00:05
Muellihaux: check gparted. It's quite convienient. I hope that won't mess up anything. Can't guarantee, though.00:06
=== nibbler is now known as nibbier
Muellihaux: to be totally safe, boot off a different disk, i.e.pendrive or CDROM and then move your partition up.00:06
hauxMuelli, I don't think gparted can move partitions OVER other partitions. At least, not that I can figure out00:06
hauxI know you can customize the placement of a partition in am enpty space, but that's all I see that the resize/move option can do.00:08

dedicated1hi I am trying to set up an ufw firewall but I cannot figure out which port to open to allow irc to connect. and even when I managed to open some I could connect to quakenet but not to freenode. anyone here that can help me with that?00:19
Muellihm dedicated1. How do you know that you can't connect to freenode/00:19
dedicated1it kept trying to log on to it but couldn't00:20
dedicated1while quakenet had no problems00:20
Muellidedicated1: how do you know?00:20
dedicated1in empathy you see the some icon trying to connect, quakenet account got connected, freenode kept spinning00:21
dedicated1now i turned off the firewall to ask for help here00:22
Muellihm dedicated1. Can you use smth more verbose, i.e. xchat or even telnet..?00:22
frederickhi friends00:22
dedicated1I am sorry but I think it is Empathy, it's the Ubuntu 11.10 default00:22
dedicated1hi there frederick00:23
frederickim from colombian then mi english is more or less00:23
_Marcusdedicated1: I don't think you need to open a port to connect out. You only need it to accept in(You(server) <- Other(client)), not connect out(You(client) -> Other(server)).00:23
Muellii.e. do "telnet irc.freenode.org 6667" and paste us the output00:23
Muelli?00:23
_Marcusfrederick: What is your native language? Ubuntu has many rooms for many languages00:23
_Marcusfrederick: It may be easier to talk to someone in your native language.00:24

Muellidedicated1: anyway, your connection to freenode works. But probably you have the firewall turned off.00:26
dedicated1I have it turned off yes00:26
dedicated1http://paste.ubuntu.com/861304/00:26
Muellidedicated1: turn it on and try again.00:26
dedicated1roger00:26
_MarcusWhat does ufw have to do with connecting to freenode?00:27
Muellidedicated1: well done anyway. Nicely quoted your shell in its entirety. Very well done.00:27
dedicated1is that bad? xD00:27
_MarcusNot at all00:28
Muellino, it's good. go ahead with the firewall turned on. If it returns the very same output, your firewall is fine.00:28
danpsyIs there any documentation for letting your application update the icons in real time with Unity?  (i.e. nuding the icon, displaying a number, progress bar, etc)00:29

_Marcus!ping01:07
ubottuanother contentless ping... sigh...01:08
_MarcusScunizi: Nope01:08
tensorpuddingtrism, gnome-shell provides org.freedesktop.Notifications01:08
RoDiMuS-X!rss01:08
tensorpuddingit's not proper that it should start notify-osd01:08
RoDiMuS-XI guess the Bot doesn't know01:08
_MarcusThere is no "rss" node01:08
Scunizi_Marcus: guess not.. I saw it did send me a private message that it didn't know anything about rss.. that was after my post that I noticed it.01:08
tensorpuddingevery single time i log in, i have to kill notify-osd and restart gnome-shell01:08
tensorpuddingit's getting to be a truly egregious cycle01:08
Scunizitensorpudding: uninstall it01:09
tensorpuddingi don't want to have to, since it's required for ubuntu-desktop01:09
trismtensorpudding: I do understand this, I believe there is a race when it starts, because I've had times where gnome-shell gets it first, and other notify-osd. As a workaround I just install notification-daemon and uninstall notify-osd01:09
RoDiMuS-XSo I guess no recommendations01:09
tensorpuddingyes, but it's a bug01:09

nicknickIt's an alternative desktop environment to gnome03:39
nicknickIt has a somewhat more windows-like feel03:39
brianp1992nicknick, dose it use alot of resorces?03:40
nicknickAs far as I know it's about comprable to Gnome in that aspect03:41
nicknickIf you're looking for a less resource heavy desktop environment there's fluxbox or xfce and several others03:41
brianp1992nicknick, do you use it?03:41
brianp1992yes im useing xubuntu right now03:42
brianp1992nicknick, yes im useing xubuntu right now03:42

beckiebest122How can I set Windows to boot by default in GRUB? 10.1003:42
pengwwho know if i want to view EAX EBX ECX... what should I do with linux.03:43
nicknickI don't and I haven't since before Hardy Heron, but I have used it before. I'm not sure how it has changed over the years though. I was plenty more buggy than gnome when I left it. That's actually why I stopped using it03:43
brianp1992nicknick, ahh okay well ill keep asking around before i jump into it then03:44
nicknickWhy not go ahead and get it and try it out for yourself? you can keep your xfce desktop manager and choose which one to use at login. If you don't like KDE, then you don't have to use it and can uninstall it. If you do like it, you can keep both and switch back and forth or if you want, uninstall xfce. There's no better way to decide if you like it than to jump right in and start using it03:45
travis69420ubuntu question for everyone... I am currently using ubuntu as my router and i am using IPTables as my firewall (this is Ubuntu server, so no GUI).  I am trying to get my box set up to accept ssh from outsde my LAN (WAN port) my WAN port is eth003:45
travis69420i have ssh server running on port 5432103:46
intokcan anyone recommend a NeoGeo emulator that actually works unlike Mednafen? Seems none of the emulators in the official Ubuntu repos works03:46

travis69420but to the local host03:46
pjmanI'm doing some testing that requires me to change the kernel boot options. After booting I want to double check that used the correct options. What command do I use to list the current kernel options in use?03:47
Jordan_Upjman: cat /proc/cmdline03:49
zykotick9intok: mame is probably the best neogeo emulator out there, gngeo is ok to (and supports the home console like options)03:49
pjmanJordan_U: Thank you!03:49
Jordan_Upjman: You're welcome :)03:50
travis69420i did try the #IPTables channel but no one seems to be awake :-(03:50
intokzykotick9 the mame version in the repos doesn't work, and GnGeo is a long dead project03:51
nicknickIt seems that no one with advanced knowledge is really on this channel right now either03:51
zykotick9intok: if you claim both mame and mednafen "don't work" perhaps they're not the issue.  good luck.03:51
revilodrawhello. when istalling xp in a virtual machine using virtualbox, which filesystem should i use - ntfs or fat?03:52

travis69420how large is your drive?03:52
revilodrawtravis69420: 30gb03:52
brianp1992nicknick, ahh okay well ill guess ill give it a try03:53
travis69420eh i'd just use NTFS revilodraw03:53
nicknickdo you know how to get it?03:53
revilodrawtravis69420: thank you03:53
travis69420better performance... I really only use FAT nowadays for Flash drives, as FAT is the most universal filesystem for all OSes (all can pretty much read and write without adding anything)03:54
intokzykotick9 mednafen launches and loads the rom, but gets stuck in a constant loop of configuring keys, the version of mame in the repos launches, but crashes when you do anything, I can't even get it to load a bios or a rom03:55

underground_back04:17
underground_toc toc04:18
Ubuntunubzykotick9, that's what I was planning, but then someone informed me that if the source dir is blank it might overwrite the backup directory to be empty as well.  The source is a ramdisk, so it might very well be empty when the cron runs.04:18
UbuntunubSo would a standard cp command be better?04:19
zykotick9Ubuntunub: just avoid the --delete stuff and you "should" be ok04:19
chris_8Right-click/add to panel doesn't work because "Trash" doesn't appear on the list of things to add04:19

travis69420anyone here recommend an opendns update client for ubuntu?04:20
chris_8Anyone running GNOME with 11.10? How to get trash icon on taskbar?04:20
intokzykotick9 I take it you had no luck either? I did find a ppa for SNES9x which works for SNES, but that still does nothing for the lack of NeoGeo emulation04:21
Varq All right, I'm back. Now what do I do about this Synaptics Package thing, travis69420?04:22
zykotick9intok: so long as your on 32bit zsnes is certainy my favourite snes emulator.  For neo-geo I think sdlmame is probably one of the best options.  good luck.04:22

travis69420varq: did u look in the package manager for blender?04:27
avyis there a way i can change the settings on the dash sidebar in  11.10?04:28
Varqtravis69420: I did a search, and all I could find was Blender 2.58, which isn't what I'm looking for.04:28
urfr332gOavy, settings?04:28
travis69420ok so guess we'll have to use the one on blenders site then varq, i just wasnt sure if it was in the package manager which would save us steps04:29
avyi want it to be like it was in 11.4 where i have to touch the top left cornerto bring it up instead of touching any part of the left hand side04:30
urfr332gOavy, look in ccsm.04:30
urfr332gOavy, unity is a plugin there if anyc hnages can be made it would be there short of a hack.04:32

mrmcgibby2What is this?04:54
cal_zykotick9: that doesn't seem to be entirely true. I can see the system booting, starting up all the processes, until *right before* i get a login prompt. At that point the screen goes garbled. So it seems to be setting it to a video mode my card doesn't handle right at the end.04:55

scienteszykotick9, ooooh, I though you meant the ubuntu version of that, the alternate installer05:15
scientescause ubuntu also has the "debian-installer" as a install method05:15

chipotle?05:44
chipotleor is that a bad practice?05:44
Canadian1296macele: Thanks :)05:44
zykotick9chipotle: if you using gnome/unity - it's probably not a good idea.  Plus you are using ALSA, pulse requires alsa for hardware access (one is not a replacement of the other, pulse replaces esd)05:44
chipotlezykotick9: :/05:45
chipotlewell, pulse isn't showing a profile for 5.0 surround sound in the ubuntu system prefs05:45
RoastedDoes anybody know of a way to increase Unity's overall font size to be rather huge? I'd like to use Ubuntu with XBMC for my HTPC but if I minimize HTPC to google soemthing I want Unity to be more presentable from 12 ft away from the TV.05:45
terr_CFHowlett: can I ask your opinon on something?  If I were to write a shell which prompted people for options and verified them ... all Q&A... but not fill in the forms and something which is not at all like say BASH... much easier to program then any GUI... would that be useful for an installer and other system utils?05:45

chipotlezykotick9: is there anything i can do?05:46

urfr332gOjessie, you have to install it.05:46
chipotleall the searching points to threads with no one helping05:46
zykotick9chipotle: not that i'm aware of.  but sound issues are not my strong suite.  good luck.05:46
macelechipotle: As I understand it, pulse uses alsa05:46
terr_CFHowlett: think of it like your a systems admin.  Instead of being treated like a shgroom it tells you what is going on!05:46
matti_why is that that i can't correctly pin applications on the unity launcher?  it always resets after i logout.05:47
chipotlemacele: yeah, i get that but lots of people on the net say they solved this by removing pulse and working directly with alsa05:47
chipotleim trying to set up a htpc and a lack of surround sound is a no-no05:47
zykotick9chipotle: you'd loose gnome sound if you remove pulse...05:47
CFHowlettterr_   I've never written a script, have no idea what/where/how such a thing would work.  Sorry, but IDK.05:47
jessieurfr332g0:thanks05:47
terr_CFHowlett: the problem as I see it and I'm a programmer is that the framework for a gui takes so much work that once its set up people try to force square pegs into round holes05:47

Support for it has been recently added and expected to be available in Linux 3.2. To make it work in Linux 3.1 you need to apply the following patches:"05:54
chipotlei'm using sandy bridge, so is that why hd audio isn't working?05:54
chipotlei guess i need to buy a video card to get surround sound to work via hdmi?05:55

CFHowletturgodfather   I did partial upgrade once.  ONCE!06:31
zykotick9urgodfather: "partial upgrade" is a terrible wording - but it means there are packages that aren't available at this time.  Sorry i don't have any real suggestions - FYI this is where "aptitude safe-upgrade" comes in REAL handy, but ubuntu decided to remove that from default install.06:31

XDS2010please help07:37
XDS2010i think i might have installed to the wrong partition07:38
theadminXDS2010: You may need to reconfigure your bootloader to point to wubi again somehow, or just do a normal install07:38
urfr332gOXDS2010, wubi is a file in windows.07:38

pfiforecognosco, well there not guaranteed to build at all. Ill try the latest and see what happens07:46
theadminchown_: Just take a disk image with dd07:46
theadminchown_: That is, though, only if the target machine has a hard drive of size equal to or greater than that of the source machine.07:46

drcodehow can I disable pae in ubuntu 11.1007:47
zykotick9theadmin: that is going to cause network issues however - udev is going to find a new MAC and thus change the ethX07:47
zykotick9drcode: install a non PAE kernel07:47

pfifodrcode, install a non-pae kernel07:47
drcodeI use it in other virtualbox with pure 64bit07:47
theadminzykotick9: Yeah some I guess. Well.07:47
llutz_chown_: tar your old installation, copy/extract to new, edit /etc/fstab, rewrite grub, done07:47
theadminzykotick9: You could use tar07:47
drcodethe vdi is installed with pae , is there way to change it?07:47
chown_theadmin: ok, im sorry i think i didnt express what i mean. how would i backup my linux, so if something happened i would have my linux backup to put in this machine or another one? the same thing?07:48
tsimpsondrcode: unless you installed (and booted from) a PAE kernel, it's not enabled. if you did, then just boot from a non-PAE (ie -generic) kernel07:48
chown_Oh, really that simple?07:48

tsimpsonpfifo: unless you installed (and booted from) a PAE kernel, it's not enabled. if you did, then just boot from a non-PAE (ie -generic) kernel07:48
theadminchown_: Probably so. But I suggest you use the tar methd.07:48

drcodeis it possible to use ubuntu rescue and remove kernel-image-pae?07:50
drcodeany huide?07:50
drcodeguide07:50
theadminchown_: Clean installs work, but you can upgrade too (then again you can never be sure it works right, it doesn't work for everyone)07:50
drcodecan I tell in boot menu to diable pae?07:51
drcodeso I can boot and remove the kerenl?07:51
zykotick9chown_: ubuntu's release schedule doesn't allow for much testing of upgrades from one release to the next, so issues are VERY common.  You'll probably find most experienced ubuntu users will recommend clean installs.07:52

greenithi, i have just watched a vid about ubuntu on the smartphone, and there was an interesting feature, where i want to know, if it alrdy exists in ubuntu: he said that the environment on the phone is able to run windows-applicatiosn (like mso) through a windows7-server where this service is running09:20
greenitis this feature alrdy in the ubuntu-desktop?09:21
Pikkachupfifo: why you repeat yourself and ignore my points? you're not even able to implement what I said, so what are you trying to do? I don't ask for not knowing09:21
llutz_Pikkachu: its open source, feel free to package all those meta-dev-packages you need. the community will say thank you (maybe)09:22
Pikkachullutz_: that doesn't invalidate the point, but you gave me an idea to workaround it09:22

mi3Hi, I downloaded a font called bank gothic light bt and installed it, now i would like to add it to conky, what name do I write in that file? can someone suggest that?10:01
derpladeei mean, it only stores 5 pages in the memory so if i go to another page not in those 5 then it will stop to load10:01
pfifomoogz, well, upstart gives you the best felixibility if all else fails10:01
derpladeei don't mind it using 1gb memory because i have enough and i use pdfs a lot10:01

This file lists all currently mounted filesystems along with their initialization options. mtab has a lot in common with fstab, the main distinction being that the latter lists all available filesystems whereas the former lists only currently mounted ones. Therefore mtab is usually in a format similar to that of f10:30

drcodeany idea please?10:55
pfifoAdvoWork, you can download the package and install it manually with dpkg, forcing it and ignoring dependencies, but thats a BAD idea10:55
damo22pfifo: one way is to do apt-get install --no-recommends10:56
pfifodrcode, sudo apt-get install <prefered image here>10:56
drcodeI did10:56

AdvoWorkpfifo, i need to install php5-gd but can't/dont want to upgrade anything else php related :S10:56
AdvoWorkwhy is it a bad idea?10:56
pfifodrcode, well now you can `sudo apt-get remove <old image here>`10:57
damo22drcode: boot into the new kernel using grub, and remove the old kernel10:57
pfifoAdvoWork, because it likely will not run correctly10:57
drcodeI can run both images?10:57
drcodewhat is the regualr image?10:57
damo22drcode: it will let you have both on your system but only one runs at a time10:57
drcodeok10:58
drcodethe regular is generic?10:58
pfifoAdvoWork, thats why I build php from scratch and all of its extras too, thats the only way to get any real control over it10:58

patrunjelHi. I have some files with names in the format : Whatever_name.flac, and I want to change then into The_same_name.mp3 . I tried piping ls to mv, a for statement, and piping ls to a variable and then renaming the files after the variable. Everything failed :D . Could you please help me out?11:57
Starnpfifo: ok. i'll use that! lol ok how does this sound to you?  /dev/sdb5 swap 8192mb    /dev/sdb6 ext4  /  243.4gb   the / after ext4 is mount point.11:58
pfifopatrunjel, ls *.falc | sed 's/flac/mp3/'  THEN copy and paste its ouput11:58
jmoerkStarn: seems fine to me11:59
pfifoStarn, meh, i would use a single partition and then add a swapfile instead11:59
jmoerkhehe11:59
pfifopatrunjel, notice i misspelled the first flac11:59
Starnpfifo: woo i don't know if this is a new option or now.. but it's letting me choose which device to put bootloader.. should i use the one that is the same device as windows OS? for i intend to restore windows boot loader and adding ubuntu to the list.. in case grub fails (which my luck it has done so with every install i have had)12:00
Starnpfifo: i prefer to make a partition for a swap. i even do that for windows.12:01
pfifopatrunjel, sorry, i didnt give you enough command there, run 'ls *.flac | sed 's/\(.*\)flac/mv "\1flac" "\1mp3"/'12:02
pfifoStarn, have fun resizing the amout of swap you have :)12:03
MonkeyDustpatrunjel  flac is not mp3, does renaming the files convert them?12:03
MonkeyDustpatrunjel  flac is 'free lossless oudio codec' - mp3 is not lossless, it is compressed12:04
Starnjmoerk: did you read what i said to pfifo ?  if my bios is set to load /dev/sda  first that would leave windows boot manager alone correct? that is if i placed the bootloader on /dev/sdb ? and than i could boot into grub just by going to bios boot menu selecting second hard drive vs going through windows manager or grub.. w/e... i am confusing my self.12:04
zainwmorning all12:04
jmoerkStarn: I really don't know, I always just use grub as the bootloader12:05
pfifoStarn, yes you can install grub on a different device and then boot from it via the boot menu12:05
Starnpfifo: i rarely resize the swap partition. and if i ever need to i can do so easily by taking space from the ntfs partition on the same hard drive.. it's currently 500gb hard drive that's empty.12:05
jmoerkpfifo has a point though, a swap file is easier to resize12:05
Starnpfifo: thanks and jmoerk thanks as well that'll kinda make it easier for me.. i don't mind holding down esc key when bios loads up to get to linux. been doing so anyways12:06

hobbeltubuntu you could even try the wubi installer the first time12:32
fireballinhobbelt, ok i will try that12:32
fireballinty :)12:32
ubuntui have ubuntu 11.10 instalation on my usb stick12:32
mdl4hey all12:33
mdl4what's good12:33
ubuntuok im going to install it from usb :)12:34
zainwso no more thoughts as to why cant boot with MBR on this raid then folks? this install seriously to bug me as it never errors or anything :(12:34
Amozzainw, when you install, does it look like one disk?12:35
zainwyes it does12:35
Amozthe RAID I mean12:35
Amozk12:35
Amozand you use the alternate installer, ubuntu-server?12:36
zainwjust gives me the 255gb disk then i use guided with lvm or with out12:36
zainwusing the ubuntu 11.10 setup disk12:36
Amozzainw, which one?12:36
zainwhave tried 10.04, 11.04 and now 11.10 so must be something im missing12:36
Amozzainw, is it for a server?12:37
pfifozainw, are you using lvm or not?12:37
zainwyes Amoz12:37
nodestoolwhere does zsh put the config files for autocomplate?12:37
Amozzainw, and you're using the 11.10 server image?12:37
zainwits the 3rd cd I've downloaded fromthe ubuntu site just in case the others were faulty12:38
zainwits server 11.1012:38
Picinodestool: /usr/share/zsh/functions/Completion/ would be a good place to start, as well as the zsh documentation.12:38
Amozzainw, have you tried something else than guided installation?12:39
hubxhey, I recently upgraded to 12.04. Now if I plug in my external screen (Dell 24") I can't use the screen of my notebook. (xrandr shows correctly configured VGA1 and LVDS1, so I guess its a driver problem)12:39
Amozfor example setting up partitions and bootloader yourself?12:39
zainwAmoz, not yet12:39
nodestoolThanks Pici12:39
tomreynis it possible to use gnome3 applets with xfce4?12:39
hubxwhat information should I include in the bugreport12:39
Amozhubx, depends what you're reporting for12:39
Amozzainw, might help to have a little more control of the installation12:40
hubxAmoz, " I recently upgraded to 12.04. Now if I plug in my external screen (Dell 24") I can't use the screen of my notebook. (xrandr shows correctly configured VGA1 and LVDS1, so I guess its a driver problem)"12:41
sacarlsonzainw: maybe there's an option to disable the internal raid in bios?  run then normal?  if so maybe you can setup a software raid in ubuntu12:41
auronandace!12.04 | hubx12:41
ubottuhubx: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) will be the sixteenth release of Ubuntu. Codename announcement here: http://www.markshuttleworth.com/archives/784 - Blueprints at https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/precise - Discussion and support in #ubuntu+112:41
zainwAmoz, in what way12:41
hubxauronandace, ty12:41
Amozzainw, maybe the guided installer does something stupid12:42
Amozsometimes its better to do it the manual way12:42
Amozzainw, what happens after installation when you try to boot?12:43
zainwAmoz, sorry on the phone12:44
sacarlsonamoz: zainw: maybe if it's just an mbr problem he could try add a 3rd disk just for the mbr to isolate if that's the problem,  like just use a usb flash as the mbr to try12:45
Amozsacarlson, zainw after install, maybe you could boot up the live cd and explore the disk for partitions etc. see if everything is there as it should. Also you can reinstall MBR from the live usb12:47
zainwSorry about that guys12:48
thoongwhen is the next release after 11.10? current iso is a bit wonky on my system.12:48

zainwAmoz, have booted with the livecd at present and in fairness, its sees the 255gb drive but there is very little on there that i would recognise as being anywhere close to how it should look etc12:50
sacarlsonamoz: zainw: I agree should be able to mount and explore the attempted install with the livecd, my guess is it fails to mount in grub12:50
starnhow do i setup irssi to auto connect to two servers? example freenode and efnet.  and have auto identify for freenode plus auto join channels?12:50
Amozstarn, have you tried the irssi documentation?12:51
bdrewery_starn: offtopic, #irssi, setup multiple networks.12:51
zainwsacarlson, it wont even show me the grub screen if i font use the live cd12:51
Amozzainw, what happens then?12:52

tomreynhi, is it possible to use gnome3 applets with xfce4? i'm trying to get the gnome-invest applet working with xfce. the normal way to do this seems to be using xfapplet, but this was since removed off oneiric (which i'm running).12:53
zainwamoz, Nothing, the server does its loading of hardware as in loads raid setup, loads network, loads iDrac card then it SHOULD load the mbr but it doesnt, it just stops dead in its tracks12:53
zainwIf i leave the boot from other devices on such as network etc, says that there is no bootable system12:54
starni have looked a the documentations some.. but i don't remember anything they said.. plus i need to finish update and installing video drivers before i go to a website for everything is super hard to see atm..12:54
auronandacetomreyn: i thought xfapplet was for getting gnome2 applets working (it wouldn't work with gnome3 applets) thats why it was removed (because gnome2 was removed)12:54
sacarlsonzainw: but can you explore the attepted install with a livecd to see if the files are there that we would expect to see?12:55
Amozzainw, +1. Just see if /boot/grub is there etc12:56
tomreynauronandace: yes i think you're right there. so how would i get gnome3 applets working in xfce4, if that's possible?12:56
georgieeeMy internal card reader (connected via internal USB) only works sometimes. Ubuntu recognizes it properly:12:56

Amozzainw, I assume you checked BIOS settings, tried resetting it etc. ?12:56
georgieeeThe inbuilt bluetooth is working out of box and without problems.12:56
georgieeeI tried to load "usb_storage" but it doesn't help. Seeing my card reader working is still just a matter of luck. Many other threads show me, that this is a main issue:12:57

zainwAmoz, sarcalson, the only thing that i can see there is what could poss be the /boot section as its only 255mb and thats it12:57

zainwAmoz, as for the bios, yeh done all that stuff, even rebuilt the raid last night just to me sure i wasnt being a complete pleb12:58
Amozzainw, 255mb?12:58
Amozpossibly?12:58
yunjoin/12:59
zainwamoz, Yes, 255mb so guess its the /boot partition on the drive12:59
Amozzainw, why don't you mount it and explore it when you're in the live session?12:59
Amozzainw, where do you see this 255mb ?12:59
sacarlsonAmoz: zainw: wouldn't we also see /home ; /var and a few other things?  like it didn't fully install or it puts that on another partition your not looking at12:59
zainwAmoz, its down in the "Devices" section when open up the home folder13:00
Amozzainw, that's the live usb then?13:00
Amozzainw, doesn't it find the partitions on disk then?13:01
zainwAmoz, well no, i dont think it is as there is a filesytem which when explored, its spins up the cd. I've used a CD rather than usb to boot from13:01
zainwAmoz, its looking that way yes13:01
Amozzainw, oh13:01
zainwits all really  strange lol13:02
Amozzainw, well in that case we need to find out why it doesn't sho13:02

User111im trying to mount my time capsule in lubuntu, but my command that once worked, doesnt work now when i reinstalled ubuntu, any ideas?  command is "sudo mount.cifs //10.10.1.5/TIMECAPSULE/ /media/mounted -o pass=somepass"13:03
sacarlsonzainw: amoz: so fdisk -l or whatever is later version won't even see any other disks?13:03
zainwAmoz, if that 255mb section is the /boot patition, shouldnt there be a grub list file on there or something?13:03
Amozzainw, what you're exploring is the mounted cd13:03

Amozzainw, that might be the best option13:39
Amozzainw, or if you feel adventurous, try the raid but without LVM and manual partitioning13:40
Amozor something like that13:40

Trevor69420bleh anyone here use NTOP14:09
helo1Hello everyone!14:10
sveinsesacarlson, I need to configure eth0 as a static network on a small LAN with no default GW nor DNS. It's a special recovery mode where NM is clobbering this setup14:10
MonkeyDustgodofwar  http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/natty/man1/gnome-session-save.1.html14:10
theadminsveinse: Just uninstall networkmanager?14:11
theadminsveinse: (or stop it from starting)14:11
sacarlsonsveinse: ok if you don't need a dns just point to yourself even if it don't work I guess that should prevent nm from messing with it14:11
sveinsetheadmin: How to stop it when it hasn't started yet?14:12
MonkeyDustsveinse  you mean: prevent it from starting14:12
sacarlsonsveinse: you can just kill it after it starts, not sure how to prevent it14:12
User111when making a startup script for rc.local, do I need the full path to where the program is located, or will simply the name of the program do?14:12
helo1sveinse: simplest solution is probably removing the NM packages14:12
swaggiUser111: use full14:12
User111ok14:12
theadminsveinse: Stop it from starting at boot, i.e: sudo mv /etc/init/network*manager.conf /etc/init/networkmanager.conf.DISABLED # I honestly don't remember whether it's "networkmanager" or "network-manager" so I put that * in there14:12
User111hmm... where are programs usually stored? :D14:13
helo1theadmin: I think it's with the -14:13
Trevor69420user11 depends14:13
swaggiUser111: echo $PATH14:13
theadminUser111: "which progname" will tell you the fullpath to progname14:13
swaggithere14:13
helo1&@ sveinse14:13
Trevor69420whatever $PATH is14:13
Trevor69420usually bin i think14:13
theadminhelo1: I dunno, I didn't use networkmanager in a long time now14:13
sveinseI have an upstart job which runs very early (prior to rc/runlevel and prior to network). It decides two modes: recovery mode or application mode. NM must start in app mode, but it clobbers the static network in recovery mode.14:13
sveinseThe core of the problem is that upstart has already decided to start nm, so renaming the /etc/init/network-manager.conf file has no effect14:14
User111well that didnt tell me much, but im reasonably sure the program i want is in usr/bin14:14
helo1sveinse: rename the .conf file at shut down. Then start the service with a script IF you boot into app mode14:15
theadminUser111: "which progname" will tell you the full path to "progname".14:16
sveinseI cannot control NM config as this config is controlled by networkmanager's packages, which ubuntu policy manual prohibits me to touch other packages configs14:16
theadminUser111: e.g: which firefox # returns /usr/bin/firefox14:16
User111yes thanks, i understood it now :)14:16
kapzhello there! I want to play movie files from my one ubuntu PC on another one connected via router through LAN cable...I open the location via ftp with login in nautilus and double click the file(to be opened with smplayer) but nothing happens, it just stay sblank14:16
User111its in usr/bin14:16
User111thanks14:16
Trevor69420kapz try VLC14:16
helo1sveinse: May I ask why you need NM in app mode?14:16
sacarlsonsveinse: I just run a script to put my system into static mode with something like this http://paste.ubuntu.com/861956/14:16
theadminkapz: smplayer is pretty cool, but I don't think it works with remote filesystems14:17
User111time to reboot and try stuff14:17
swaggimplayer does14:17
sveinsehelo1: We use it to control wifi and general user network setup14:17
Trevor69420just not very well14:17
Trevor69420to be honest the VLC streaming option might be best14:18
theadminkapz: Actually, try "Open URL" in smplayer (ctrl-u)14:18
Halexander9000Hey, if I wanted to record my screen, what program would I use?14:18
sveinsesacarlson: Yes, I tried that. But doing service network-manager stop has no effect, as upstart haven't started network-manager yet. But it's about to.14:18
sacarlsonsveinse: after I complete my static operation I just put it back to dhcp mode with sudo dhclient eth014:18
helo1sveinse: sacarlson's pasted script above looks like it does the trick of stopping the NM service (which you can do after booting into recovery) and then sets the static IP. Run the script later in the boot process to avoid that issue14:19
sacarlsonsveinse: or add a delay in the script to make sure that network manager is already started to stop it14:19
swaggiHalexander9000: ffmpeg14:19

Halexander9000swaggi: Problem is, X11grab isn't working.14:20
sveinseAFAIK upstart makes a decision tree on which services to start, so upstart has already decided to start NM when my script is run. And I cannot delay anything, as upstart wont start network until my script is done. (start on starting network)14:21
Halexander9000swaggi: Unknown input format: 'x11grab'14:22

chipotlei read that i can't have hd audio on 3.0 unless i patch it myself. i read that from arch linux... is there a way to use those patches on ubuntu?18:06
chipotleah yeah, kernel.org18:06
sstachipotle: yep.  Note that's unsupported...so if it breaks you get to keep both halves :)18:06
chipotlei found it here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Advanced_Linux_Sound_Architecture#HDMI_Multi-channel_PCM_output_does_not_work_.28Intel.2918:07
zykotick9ssta: it might not break in half - thus suggestion "if it breaks you get to keep the pieces" is often more accurate ;)18:07
pfifochipotle, maybe you should install a 2.6 kernel instead18:07
sstachipotle: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile might be helpful if you decide to compile18:07

seanismhow much memory would my VPS require for ubuntu and vnc so I can remote into a GUI?18:26
seanism512mb?18:26
zykotick9!requirements | seanism18:26
ubottuseanism: Hardware requirements to install, boot and comfortably use Ubuntu are listed at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SystemRequirements - For a !flavor with lower requirements, see !Xubuntu or !Lubuntu18:26
theadminseanism: Probably around that, but actually depends on how hungry the GUI is18:26
sstaseanism: 2G imo...1G *minimum* I'd say18:26
seanismfor a VPS though?  I know for physical18:26
theadminssta: wut? This ain't Windows you know, any distro which requires 1G ram is just plain crazy18:26
seanism10.04 so I can ssh / vnc in18:27
zykotick9theadmin: that's ubuntu's recommended minimium you realize?18:27
Zalzykotick9, ok, I guess that would still work if his machine were thrashing.18:27
theadminzykotick9: Recommended?...18:27
theadminzykotick9: Maybe... I ran ubuntu with 512m fine though, but then again that was back in Lucid times18:27
sstatheadmin: running any sort of DE in less than 1G...not really sane imo18:27
seanismya thats what Im afraid of18:28
DaekdroomThe recommended is 1GiB18:28
theadminssta: Who said anything about DEs? GUI != DE, you could just very well use "naked" X, or some Openbox...18:28
DaekdroomI boot my x64 Ubuntu to a little over 550MiB... so...18:28
theadminzykotick9: Also, again, the "S" in VPS stands for "server", meaning it's not going to do any heavy tasks such as multimedia playback so...18:29
zykotick9Daekdroom: using 64bit with 500MB ram is crazy you realize?  32bit would give you more accessible memory in such a setup.18:29
sstatheadmin: sure.  1G is still tight imo.  Remember, Lucid was 2 years ago.  When I ran Linux first 32-128MB was fairly standard...I wouldn't want to try that now...18:29
zykotick9theadmin: and in my opinion GUIs on servers - make NO sense.18:29
Daekdroomzykotick9, I did not say I have 500MB. I said Ubuntu starts using over 500MB for me ;)18:30
DaekdroomI have 4G18:30
theadminzykotick9: Agree entirely, makes no sense to me either.18:30
zykotick9Daekdroom: sorry, misunderstood18:30
_Ethan_the program i was looking for is called Restoration folks, very cool and simple18:30
seanismi would run desktop just so I can remote in and have some things running or active at all times for convenience18:31
Zaltheadmin, mightn't a server be used for multimedia multicasting, for example? Just sayin'18:31
sstaseanism: screen?18:31
philipballew_Is there a proper way in Debian to get a newer kernel for squeeze, or should I just compile one?18:31

seanismi use screen now with my small vps18:31

fairuz_What should I choose for the flags? I'm formatting with gparted.19:05
fairuz_Does boot is enough?19:05
ActionParsnipczz: it should have one. Very weird. I suggest you run:  echo "nameserver 8.8.8.8" | sudo tee /etc/resolv.conf      to get started19:05
zykotic10fairuz: FYI grub doesn't case about "boot flags"19:05

ActionParsnipryzzan: then its not detected by the kernel at boot. is there a switch to enable / disable it?19:11
theadminfairuz_: grub doesn't really care for the "boot" flag, it's some Windows thing19:12

L3topActionParsnip: The XFS guaranteed-rate I/O system provides an API that allows applications to reserve bandwidth to the filesystem. XFS will dynamically calculate the performance available from the underlying storage devices, and will reserve bandwidth sufficient to meet the requested performance for a specified time. This feature is unique to the XFS file system. Guarantees can be hard or soft, representing a trade off between19:14
L3top reliability and performance, though XFS will only allow hard guarantees if the underlying storage subsystem supports it. This facility is most used by real-time applications, such as video-streaming.19:14

FireBeardI'm too lazy to submit it to Launchpad, besides, my English is way too poor to do that19:33
forever2432FireBeard: it could'nt maybe be the getting hot, maybe stick a fan on it for testing19:33
L3topmicahcavaleri: most of us who use git set it up and dont think about it again. This is not really an ubuntu related question, so you may not get a reply unless it is fresh in someones head.19:33

FireBeardthanks for all the suggestions tho :)19:35
FireBeardI guess I'll have to live with Audacious for a while19:35
forever2432FireBeard: a thumb suck, maybe Audacious doesnt use a default config for sound but its own19:35
FireBeardcould be19:35
FireBeardI can't be arsed to check if it's hot now tho19:35
